from the director of central intelligence agency, that references of al qaeda were taken out for security reasons not for political reasons. do you accept the explanation by ambassador rice? >> i don't believe that the best intelligence assessment on 16, september was that there was a spontaneous event in benghazi based on a video that led to a mob that became a riot. the cia station chief on the day of the attack reported in realtime we're under attack by al qaeda affiliates. the president in libya said on the day of atack -- excuse me on 16, september, al qaeda was involved. we've got drones. released the video. we know what a mob looks like in the mideast. i am increasingly convinced the fbi interviewed the survivors in ramstein, germany, the day after and convinced that the best and current intelligence assessment on 16, september went against the video. the video was a political smoke screen. the actual facts were this was a coordinated preplanned terrorist attack. when the president said on "letterman" we think the video caused this. when he said at the u.n. we won't le
. accused of trying to join al qaeda and wage violent jihad against america. >>> let's go "outfront." ♪ >>> good evening, everyone. i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, no cease-fire. the killing continues in israel and gaza. the conflict in its seventh day. u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton in jerusalem tonight. she arrived late and went straight to a meeting with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. >> america's commitment to israel's security is rock-solid, and unwavering. that is why we believe it is essential to deescalate the situation in gaza. >> deescalate the situation in gaza. what does deescalate mean? there was a spade of rockets just a moment ago, but yet that's the key word being used by the administration. during a brief press conference with prime minister netanyahu, there was no mention of a cease-fire. netanyahu said israel is prepared to take whatever action is necessary to defend itself. and egypt, which is brokering a deal between the two sides, cancelled a press conference where officials were expected to announce a deal with terms for a cease-fire. tomo
there was clearly counter information that affirmed that this was a terrorist attack orchestrated by an al qaeda affiliated organization. >> by now you know the story. rice intimated a cheesy anti-islam film caused the murderous rampage at the consulate in benghazi, libya. not true. her assertion on several sunday talk shows was okayed by the intelligence community and caused one great big partisan brawl. soon, democrats piled on, accusing republicans of racism. >> susan rice's comments didn't send us to iraq and afghanistan. somebody else's did. but you're not angry with them. i would just say in closing that it is a shame that any time something goes wrong, they pick on women and minorities. i have a real issue with that. >> yet when asked about mccain, rice was conciliatory. >> i have great respect for senator mccain and his service to our country. i always have. and i always will. i do think that some of the statements he made about me have been unfounded. but i look forward to having the opportunity at the appropriate time to discuss all of this with him. >> so, after mccain saying he would
senators tuesday it was the fbi that took references to al qaeda out of these unclassified talking points rice used for her tv appearances. but later in the day morell called to say he was wrong. it was actually his agency, the cia. >> i can't help but feel incredibly disappointed that we were told something at 10:00 a.m. that couldn't withstand scrutiny for six hours and that's totally inconsistent with what we were told the day before. we now have five different explanations of who changed the talking points to take out benghazi and four different reasons. this is becoming a joke. >> reporter: it is quite surprising that the acting cia director gave incorrect information on something as politically explosive as the controversial talking points that susan rice used in a meeting with among the administration's chief republican critics. you know, the answer to why he did it according to senators is simply that he misspoke, wolf. >> so a quick question, dana. does that mean michael morell if the president were to nominate him to become the permanent director of the cia he would have problem
explained she was using these unclassified talking points which were stripped of references to al qaeda still classified by the intelligence community. so rice used the word extremist. >> extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. >> reporter: a source inside the meeting tells cnn rice admitted to gop senators she was aware of classified information suggesting al qaeda was behind the attack. and yet gop senators point out she still said this publicly. >> we have decimated al qaeda. >> reporter: cnn has also told rice tried to clarify to gop senators that what she meant was al qaeda's core leadership had been decimated. but gop senators argue rice was putting pre-election spin before national security. >> it was unjustified to give the scenario as presented by ambassador rice and president obama three weeks before an election. >> reporter: rice did not answer our questions. she did release a statement admitting her talking points "were incorrect in a key respect. there was no protest or demonstration in benghazi. while we certainly wish we had perfect information jus
critical. four men from southern california are under arrest charged with plotting to join al qaeda and kill americans. abc's senior justice correspondent pierre justice covers homeland security for us. good evening, pierre. >> reporter: good evening, george. as we head toward the holiday season, u.s. law enforcement will be on the hunt for any terror plots aimed at destroying our joy. and today the fbi provided a wake-up call that there may be radicals among us. anwar al awlaki was the world's most wanted man, public enemy number one, encouraging radicals to attack america in his online preaching. the u.s. killed him in a drone strike in 2011, but today we learn awlaki is still helping to recruit terrorists from the grave. overnight the fbi announced charges against four californian men accused of plotting to go to afghanistan to bomb and kill u.s. soldiers. they were disciples of awlaki. >> there was an extensive amount of their admiration for him and, quite frankly, idolizing anwar awlaki. >> reporter: the alleged ringleader, sohiel kabir was a former member of the u.s. air force
on benghazi provided to rice, critics say that changes including stripping out word al qaeda and had affect of minimizing roll are terrorism but now went last 24 hours, clap are's officclapper's office saiy reversal and said they were responsible for those changes. and adam shift said, to anyone listening it was clear from general petraeus, and other officials to testified last week, talking points were ammended to protect classified sources of information. and not subject to any political spin, now clapper must explain genesis of the statement about attack which was blamed on this video and a demonstration eye jacked by terrorists. >> i think wha clapper has to sy whether he add vacated the youtube video theory, whether he pressed it on the white house, if so, did he did it at the direction of the white house, that is something we need a lot more testimony bgiven that he is flatly contradicted what he told congress last week. >> reporter:since this reversal, on the statements we've made requests to his office, for comment but our calls have not been returned, lou. lou: catalina, that is a
on those sunday talk shows. why she did not mention al qaeda, not just that -- because we understand now that she didn't mention it because she was told that that was classified and she was given unclassified talking points and that's what she read from. the bigger question they have, we're told, is why she went further and said that the obama administration has decimated al qaeda and whether or not she said that knowing the classified information, which suggested that al qaeda might have been behind or at least an affiliate of al qaeda might have been behind this attack in benghazi. >> it will be an interesting morning on the hill. >> this is ridiculous. first of all, she wasn't secretary of state. you have critics who don't want to mention secretary of state clinton, didn't want to mention petraeus when it came to the cia. and they want to zero in on somebody who frankly was sent out on television who was not even over the ambassador. >> are we seeing here, basically, the end game on this? will this resolve these issues? do we think that basically we're going to expect to see her nomin
the fbi removed references of al-qaeda from the talking points, but at four o'clock eastern time today, cia officials said morale misspoke and that, in fact, the cia deleted references, not the fbi. stay tuned, as they say. joining us now, former u.s. ambassador not united nations, john bolten, andrew mccarthy, former federal prosecutor who convicted the blind shake, and the author of "spring fever." great to have you both here. andrew, your reaction to what is playing out in the nation's capital. this is the nation's capital -- capital of a superpower; right? >> so they say. a lot of misspeaking going on, it would appear. you know, look, it's been obvious from the start here that they tried to play out the idea of this video nobody saw of this being the cause of the atrocity of what happened in benghazi in which four, including our ambassador, were killed. it's important to get to the bottom of it, and getting to the bottom of it, a comedy of error, should not obscure the fact this is a major advocation by the commander in chief who did not take action in a seven and a half hour siege
range and plan to join al qaeda. they told the fbi that would be officially trained in afghanistan then participate in violent gee jihad. -- one of them served in the u.s. air force. the fbi says the men planned to depart this month. >> a man is under arrest accused of molesting girls and offering them marijuana. san rafel police arrested jason edward clar yesterday. he's accused of the continuous sexual abuse of two girls under the age of 11, also taking lewd pictures of them and offering them marijuana. he has not seen the girls for about two years now. the girls told a parent about the allegations. clar is being held on $150,000 bail. >>> san mateo county prosecutors filed new charges against a murder suspect to try to keep him in jail while they appeal the dismissal of a murder charge against him. they charged gregory elarms with possessing weapons while in jail. that increased his bail to a half million dollars. he confessed to the fatal shooting of activist david lewis but the judge dismissed the case saying that elarms wasn't given his miranda rights. prosecutors say they'll
are under arrest charged with plot to go join al qaeda and kill americans. as pierre thomas explains the men are following a dead terrorist still so powerful he's inspiring a new wave of jiha jihadist from the grave. >>reporter: an war was the world most wanted man. public enemy no. 1. encouraging radical to attack america in the on line preaching. u.s. killed him in the drone strike in september 2011 but today we learn he's still helping to recruit terrorists from the grave. overnight the fbi announced charges against 4 california men accused of plotting to good to afghanistan to bomb and kill u.s. soldier soldiers. they were disciple of an war. extensive amount of their admiration for him and quite frankly idealizing him. >>reporter: alleged ring leader of the group was a former member of the u.s. air force. fbi claims the alleged terror cell had conducted training including going to shooting range and even bought tickets to travel to afghanistan through mexico. >> this was a valid violent extremist network. we took this very, very seriously. >>reporter: according to t
over an american-made anti-muslim video. since then we've learned it was coordinated by al-qaeda affiliates. >>> lawmakers trying to avoid the fiscal cliff, automatic tax hike for all americans, unless congress and the president can compromise. biggest obstacle is a pledge of no tax increases of any kind signed by most republicans. grover norquist is behind the pledge and has convinced thousands of republicans to sign the pledge in exchange for helping them get reelected. some republicans open to breaking the pledge say they will do it by closing loopholes but say entitlement reform must be part of the discussion. >>> do you think you are paying -- >>> good morning. home prices continue to climb nationwide up 3% in september compared to a year ago. in the san francisco area it was 7 1/2% compared to a year ago. meantime, watch for your landlord to jack up rent. recents are up 4.1% this year, watch for rents to go up 4.6% next year and 4.7 the year after. zillow buying hot pads for 16 million dollars, has 19 employees will stay in san francisco, zillow says the move will help it i
carrier waits for the body of osama bin laden. it's may 2, 2011, the al qaeda leader has just been killed. two u.s. navy admirals use code words to describe bin laden. the commander says fed ex delivered the package, both trucks are safely on route home base. the e-mails heavily redakted have just been released by the defense department responding to a freedom of information act washdog. a few days earlier that strike dog asked do i need any special religious ceremonial preparations. after bin laden's buried at sea, an admiral describes the scene. tradition traditional procedures for islamic burial was followed. the deceased body was washed then placed in a white sheet then a military officer read prepared religious remarks which were translated into arabic. tipped up whereupon the deceased body slid into the sea. according to e-mails, there aren't many witnesses. in response to the question, any sailors watch the burial, burial, no sailors watched. and another says only a small group of the leadership was informed. less than a dozen total. and another indication of the secrecy of that pa
. -- we knew that those with ties to al qaeda were involved. they knew by the 22nd that the information given to them was wrong, yet they have not cleared that up with the american people to date in saying they were wrong, including the president of the united states. host: the new hampshire senator went on to say she will block any clinton's successor, because she wants more information about the benghazi attacks. what is next on that front? since an individual senator can put a hold on a nomination. that could prevent this from going forward. we have seen this in previous cases. if we saw this in the bush and administration would john bolton. we have seen it in a couple of cases in the obama administration where nominee for a high government post was held up for a long time. it all depends in the end on whether kelly ayotte gets any allies from her fellow republicans on this, because the way you could overcome her individual opposition is to get about five republicans that the democrats would need to break any filibuster that she might muster. i suspect, based on what i've seen of the
speaking out. james clapper saying he is the one who took out al qaeda talking points after originally saying he had no idea who did it. so who should we all believe here? joining us now is former cia covert operations officer mike baker live in boise idaho at 3:15 a.m. good to see you, mike. >> thank you. good to see you and thank you for the opportunity. >> what do we make of all of this after what susan rice has come out and said? she clearly relayed the intel given to her. should we expect a diplomat to do more than that. to go beyond and ask questions before relay ago story to the media. >> well, right. not just a diplomat but the person that president obama claims would be a perfect secretary of state to replace secretary clinton. ambassador rice is stying five days after the attack. now it's three mons on from the attack and we are still kind of around with the potential investigation. getting people in to testify. but ambassador rice is saying five days after the attack all she did, at the behest of the white house was go on the sunday morning talk show circuit and rely entirel
animal house! james clapper says i took that pesky, that al-qaeda stuff out. >> right. >> and so for susan rice, the secretary of state in waiting, as it were, to say, i'll take ese talking points. give me these eight talking points that have been sanitized and cleaned up and altered and then i'll go out on national television on five shows and i'll read it. >> instead she should have done what? >> at the same time, you treat me as a credible person who is worthy of becoming secretary of state. someone who is worthy of credibility and truthfulness. in diplomacy, people tell lies all the time. but there has to be some sense of credibility. >> what should she have done? >> she should have told the true. >> but to her, that was the truth. >> no, no, no. wait a second. how is she going to find it? common sense a guide. history is a guide. past experience is a guide. five attacks in the previous few months, the red cross being bombed, our whole embassy being bombed, the british ambassador almost being assassinated, benghazi being known as a hot bed for terrorism and al-qaeda in the mi
knew that those with ties to al qaeda were involved in the attack on the ambassador and clearly, the impression that was given, the information given to the american people, was wrong. in fact, ambassador rice said today, absolutely it was wrong. i don't understand the cia clearly that that information was wrong, and they knew by the 22nd it was wrong. yet, they've not cleared that up with the american people to date and have come forward and said it was wrong, including the president of the united states also parroting and talking about this is reaction to a video, the attacks in benghazi. and what troubles me also is that the -- obviously the changes made to the unclassified talking points were misleading but just to be clear, when you have a position when you are ambassador to the united states, you go well beyond unclassified talking points in your daily preparation responsibilities for that job and that's troubling to me as well, why she wouldn't have said -- it's not just the talking points but it is part of her responsibility as the ambassador of a united nation to reveal
of the rewriting of those talking points was done by the fbi to take out al qaeda references, not by the zewe we had been told by the director of national intelligence came from the intelligence committee. it's worse than when she went up. she'll see bob corker, known to be bipartisan from tennessee and i don't think it'll be quite as vitriolic as yesterday. she felt she wanted to clear her name and she had been maligned and just been on morning television. that the real issue as jay carney was trying to say what happened before, what happened during but not what happened on sunday morning television programs and there is an investigation that hillary clinton has commissioned. it is a legally mandated investigation being led by none other than the former chairman, joint chief, mike ullin and co-chaired from mike pickering and deputy secretary of state. it's going to be coming out in mid-december and reported to congress and i understand it's going to be very tough on the state department for not ramping up security which many people believe could be the real issue here, not what was said on sund
